Self-portrait in Greenpoint

Greenpoint is one on a number of very cool neighborhoods in New York City. This self-portrait is part of the SNYC Newsletter photo assignment of the week to take a photo with a natural frame. Of and it’s my favorite kind of selfies, a reflection. Self-Portrait in Greenpoint, Brooklyn 3 June 2017. https://www.shootnewyorkcity.com/blog/2017/6/3/self-portrait-in-greenpoint

Breaking out of routines

I am very passionate about photography. It is something that I do almost as naturally as eating and sleeping. But there are times when I feel myself getting into a repetitive pattern. Yes, there are times when I get a little bored. That’s when I try new things. I’ve been using intentional camera movement for a number of years now. Most of the time it’s either a vertical or horizontal motion. Lately I’ve gotten into more circular motions and I’m having a lot of fun with it. The beginning of a new series. I will create a new gallery for it soon. This photo was taken in Bushwick, Brooklyn during the Street Art & Creative Photography Workshop on 26 February 2017. Perhaps I will schedule another one of those soon. You can also checkout my Street Photography Workshops where we often use some creative techniques as well.

Dumbo in colors. Abstract style!

It was a beautiful springlike day and I went to Dumbo (down under the Manhattan Bridge) with camera in hand. So many photographic opportunities there! I did some intentional camera movement. It’s a lot of fun! If getting creative with photography is something you’re interested in it’s something that we do on the Bushwick Street Art and Creative Photography Workshop
